Taxis are available 24 hours a day at Houari Boumediene International Airport. As Algiers is a very large city, the price and the duration of the journey depend on the distance of the district of destination and of the congestion of the streets. Due to airport pick-up fees, the cost of a ride from the airport is higher than the same trip to the airport. The average fare is 1,200 DA for a ride from the airport to the city center against 800 DA for the same trip in the opposite direction. The line of taxis is in front of terminals 1 and 2.
